Pulled the battery at least 6 times to no avail. I ultimately called tmobile before i blew the thing away and it turns out that some setting of mine back at tmobile for data services was messed up. they had me pull the battery and they did a remote reset of _something_. when i plugged back in, it was all good to go.
I still have no idea what happened... and when i used to roam with my 8700 i never had any issues. But no matter. I now know and hopefully if someone else has this issue they too will know.
